Misery for Manchester United and a goal fest for Chelsea: The Premier League predictions

A look ahead to the action in England's top-flight on Saturday and Sunday

Just when the Premier League completes its hectic festive period of the season, it gets busy again.

A weekend of action is followed by a midweek of action, and it's another chance to make a big move away from trouble, or it it all goes wrong, a slide towards the Championship.

Leaders Liverpool have possibly the toughest challenge; hosting Manchester United, and then travelling to Wolves. It might not make an ounce of difference to their Premier League cakewalk, but they will do well to remain unbtean and edge ever closer to the tag of Invincibles.

Liverpool play Manchester United in the 8.30pm match on Sunday. The weekend kicks off with Nigel Pearson against Jose Mourinho, or Watford v Tottenham, at 4.30pm on Saturday.

Later that day Manchester City host Crystal Palace, while Chelsea visit Newcastle in the late game at 9.30pm.
